Support Our Mission


Young people like to read. But they need access to good books, all the time.

Founded in 2011, the Kindle Classroom Project promotes the love and power of reading by providing Kindles and good books to elementary, middle, and high school students in Oakland and the Bay Area.

People like you have donated 2,649 Kindles and 2,460 e-books so far. Thank you, Donors!

Here are some ways you can help out!

Donation1

1. Donate your Kindle!

When you donate a Kindle, you’re giving a young person unlimited access to a library of thousands of excellent books. If you have a Kindle sitting around and you’re not sure what to do with it, please donate it to a student!

2. Donate money for books!

The most important part of the program is ensuring that students have access to books they want to read. When a student requests a book, we buy it immediately. For each $10 you donate, a student gets a new book to read. Even better: The book becomes a permanent part of the Kindle Library, available to all students. And the book lasts forever, never getting lost or worn.

* Donate an Amazon.com gift card. Filling the form is easy: Choose an amount and enter kindleclassroomproject@gmail.com as the recipient. Please leave your name and email address in the message box so we can thank you! 100% of your gift goes to buy books that students request.
Note: Restrictions apply, see Amazon.com Gift Card Terms and Conditions

* Donate via PayPal. PayPal is another great way to donate. You don't need to have a PayPal account - you can pay with a debit or credit card.
Note: PayPal charges a 3% fee for donations, so 97% of your gift goes to buy books that students request.

3. Donate an item from our wishlist!

Head on over to the KCP wishlist to donate Kindles, cases, chargers, and other items to encourage students to read all the time. (Important: Be sure to leave your email in the message box so we can thank you!) Your gift will be shipped automatically to the right place!
